Glorious Morning 3

Glorious Morning 3, L. Daniel, 6 x 8, SOLD

It's so interesting to watch how the rising sun changes the colors of the landscape. This series of paintings depicts the transformation of a single morning in about 15 minute increments. In the final painting, the fog on the water lights up and mutes the distant shore. The cloudy sky also added to the show on this particular morning. It was a fun exercise in observation.

Below are all three paintings in chronological order...

Wow. I love these "time lapse" paintings. I'm really trying to work on becoming more loose and quick with my drawing and painting. As of now, I could never do this...practice, practice, practice.

These are wonderful!!! I have proclaimed many times that painting sunsets and sunrises is "out of my league" because I could never create one greater than our Creator.(Who tends to do a pretty great job, day in and day out!)I'd say you managed it beautifully!Great series! Thanks for sharing!

I so hope the same person now owns all three of your little gems. The progression of sunrise should continue to be enjoyed by all who see them.
